He began practicing kung fu at the age of 6, studying Northern Shaolin, Hung Gar, and Southern Praying Mantis.  By the age of 13, Tai Yim began practicing Hung Fut, soon becoming an instructor and helping teach in his Sifuís school.  In 1975, Tai Yim opened his own Hung Fut School in Hong Kong.  Tai Yim also studied and practices Chinese Herbal Medicine.

In 1979, Tai Yim opened his first U.S. Hung Fut Kung Fu School, located in Maryland, where he continues to teach and spread the Hung Fut System. Tai Yim Kung Fu has produced many national and international champions and grand-champions, several of which are currently instructors at the Tai Yim Kung Fu School.  Tai Yim has been active in the martial arts arena around the world.  He has produced several action films.  Over the past 3 decades, he has helped co-found various successful martial arts organizations, including NACMAF (North American Chinese Martial Arts Federation), and the USAWKF (USA Wushu-Kung Fu Federation).  At present, Tai Yim serves as president of the World Hung Fut Kung Fu Federation, and as senior vice-president of the newly formed USTKFWF (United States Traditional Kung Fu-Wushu Federation).  Tai Yim continues to contribute to the martial arts community, spreading and preserving traditional Chinese martial arts as his main goal.
